Trying to enable Hypervisor support on a VM in Nutanix 5.5 AHV. Version 5.0 had an ACLI command that I assume can be applied to a VM as follows: acli vm.update [i]my_vm_name[/i] nested_hv="true" This is documented here for 5.0: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=AMF-Guide-AOS-v50:acl-acli-vm-auto-r.html In any version after 5.0 (5.1, 5.2, 5.5) the command is gone. On 5.5 you get an error: Unknown keyword argument: nested_hv The nested_hv is gone from the ACLI documentation: https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Command-Ref-AOS-v55:acl-acli-vm-auto-r.html Use case is for a simulator VM that runs KVM underneath. Is there another way to do this in 5.5 or was the feature just removed?
I opened a case and got this reply - It answers the question.
